    post your 7" travel under 40 lbs builds

    I can't do the same, because I don't have one yet but I'm thinking about building something up.

    By limiting it to 40lbs tops this should be a short but interesting thread.

    I never apologize. I'm sorry, but that's just the way I am.

    40 lbs isn't really that hard to get under anymore. my 07 black diamond double has 7.5 of travel and is around 41.5 lbs stock. with single ply freeride tires and regular tubes that i have on it now it is dead on the 40lb mark and that is for an under $2000 bike. if i got rid of the telescoping seatpost (2 seatposts) it would definetly be under 40lbs. i think the 07 black diamond triple is stock at 38lbs with dh tubes etc. you could get it down to around 36lbs pretty easy.

    My stock session 77 is just over 40, wouldn't take much to get it lower. But it's not an issue with me. It rocks as is.

    I'm going to call BS until I see a scale picture. Maybe w/ those red XC tires you're close to claimed.

    Yeah brett I kinda considering the same thing, I finally got my dh bike built and it owns at resorts but everywhere else its overkill, I'm considering getting a shorter rear shock and a 66 and a granny ring so i could have a 7 on 7 bike and I could pedal uphill. I really only want a true dh bike a few times a year and even the socal races are overkill with a dh bike. I kinda miss the mongoose black diamond I was borrowing for a while, I could ride xc, dirt jumps, dh, freeride all on the same bike.

    Hey FR I think so. I've got a lot faster learned not to do some stupid braking mistakes learned about tire pressure. Learned not to race with a broken axel that makes my wheel bind.

    I never apologize. I'm sorry, but that's just the way I am.
